Beautiful, quiet and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Sugardog Ranch. The apartment was well stocked with top quality linens, facilities and appliances were well kept and very clean. We loved that our newly adopted rescue puppy was welcome and well cared for. Our puppy was quite happy to be able to explore and play the fenced exercise area. Our favorite part of this HomeAway was the private, large screened in patio where we could relax and enjoy the view after a long day of hiking or sightseeing in the area. Herb and Alisa were fantastic hosts and quite lovely humans, too! We hope to return to this place on our next visit to Southern Utah.

Perfect - good location, great views, comfortable apartment, fenced yard area for dogs.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with this property! The location is out Hwy 89, a few miles east of Kanab, but easy to find and quiet. The ground level lay-out of the apartment, with parking in front, made it easy to unload upon arrival, and easy to get things packed up for the trip home. For the two adults and our two small dogs, there was nothing to dislike at all. The overall design of the apartment, the decoration of the apartment, the comfort of the bed, the luxurious bath towels/mats, the size and convenience of closet space, the porches, and the fenced yard space are just a few of my favorite things here. It was heaven to me to be able to let the dogs out in the morning while still in my robe and to be able at night to let the dogs have one last chance to go out into the yard without having to be on their leashes. Thanks Herb and Lisa for sharing your space with us and for being so thoughtful to leave the anniversary/birthday card and gift. We hope to return again soon.

Very nice spot and very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came because we had to help move a relative, so our stay was work not play. However, the Sugardog Ranch was very nice and would make the perfect base for a Southern Utah vacation.

The owners are friendly and helpful, the property is picture perfect, the accommodations comfortable, and the price is competitive. And while the place a is clearly dog friendly, there was no evidence of any of the previous pet stays. The place was very clean.

Cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment with all the amenities, very clean and comfortable. The screened in patios were so relaxing after volunteering at Best Friends; the view and hummingbirds were a bonus.

Herb thought of everything and we loved they allowed sleepovers as well. It's so nice to be able to bring a dog home from the sanctuary.

I highly recommend Sugardog Ranch. We can't wait for our next visit to Best Friends and will be looking forward to staying at SDR again!

Thank you Herb and Alisa for sharing your home.

What a wonderful gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sugar Dog Ranch. We visit the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary regularly, and this Ranch is a short drive to Dog Town where we volunteer. Herb and Alisa were amazing hosts, and provided everything we could have needed and more for our stay. The apartment was impeccably clean, and no detail was left unmet. Our hosts were always available to answer our questions, yet they gave us complete privacy when we desired it. We will definitely stay here again! Thanks so much Herb, and Alisa for your generous hospitality!
